Leaving

We spent the summer needing less and leaving
it started in June
I withdrew to my fortress of boring boys you knew
Am I worth it?
Can you choose?

Oh August, the instance bears repeating
‘I need this’ I said
and left you waiting
my empty room, my shoes
remind you I’m coming back
I’ll be coming home to you

If you cry then I feel like I won’t cry (I don’t wanna cry)
But I’m feeling so supported
I’m leaving
I’m leaving I mean it
We rarely talked about this

You showed me in fury
In rushed cartoons and played out attitudes
You let me in, you like me around
Well I’ll be around
but I’m out on tour
not giving you more

If you cry then I feel like I won’t cry (I don’t wanna cry)
But I’m feeling so supported
I’m leaving
I’m leaving I mean it
We rarely talked about this

So we come the end of summer
Time to learn, to lose, to let go
And I know
This thing is new, but we’ll make it through
You know me
You hear me
On pages together like our love in my bedroom
I can lie through this with you

If you cry then I feel like I won’t cry (I don’t wanna cry)
But I’m feeling so supported
I’m leaving
I’m leaving I mean it
We rarely talked about this

I’m Leaving
I’m Leaving I mean It
We rarely talked about this

So goodbye now…
